Prime (very $$$) or Crab Shell. You can also dock at Harbor Point. There are a few restaurants there.

Google Ponus Yacht Club. They have public docks for visitors and outdoor seating. Its a fried seafood/burgers/drinks in plastic cups kind of place. People have been super nice every time ive been there.

Crab shell is easy in and easy out. They have their own set of slips. Probably 8 of them if I had to guess. Your classic fried seafood joint. Also has non-fried options. Food is decent. Probably more expensive than the food warrants but not by much. Has indoor and outdoor areas that are big so crowding isnít too much of a problem. Itís never gonna be the place that you think and dream about going to but if anyone ever asks me if I want to meet at crab shell for a beer and some fried clam bellies, Iím almost always down for it.

UNC is right, I'll add that Crabshell will sometimes charge a $15 flat rate to tie up there.

typically municipal marinas dont care if people hop on

at other marinas, do pump out, or buy some ice, or buy some fuel, be discreet

Crab shell does monitor 9 but you can just pull up, they have a kid working the docks that will show you where to go and take your lines.

Definitely - if you're looking for something to do that's fun and easy. if you are the kind of person that complains that they overfried the fish and chips or that there was wobbly table, then I wouldn't bother. otherwise it is a good southern New England experience and a great way to spend a couple hours enjoying Long Island Sound boating.

Thanks all. Picked up my crew in Stamford Harbor yesterday. Unfortunately it was too early to pick them up at the Crab shell. I went next door to the new Hinkleys building and took on some fuel. Great folks at Hinkleys and awesome new facility. On the drop off the Crab shell was packed out and everyone looked like they were having a good time. Thanks again all

not at Tutto,
it's across the street not waterside. Willis & coneys offer trans service with dock or moring with shuttle / west shore offers trans docking & there is a town dock next to harbor club / not sure tie up time limit or rules. But from town dock you can walk to tutto / right there across the street. It's ok / not one of my fav places but decent.

Better off tying up at Northport town dock & going to Maroni !!!! 10X's better if you are seeking Italian. Or The ritz / skippers, main street / feed & grain or rockin fish all really good !
